Hi Maryah,
I do agree with you that the answer to question 50 is inaccurate, in my opinion, it should be A. (Fast food is never nutritious, so B and C are out, and as for D fast food never tastes natural haha :joy:)

Food additives have three uses in general:

  • Improve the food’s appearance
  • Prevent spoilage of food
  • Improve the taste and texture of food

However, I don’t think the mark scheme attached is the wrong one? I doubled check the answers for the first 20 questions and they seem fine to me. If there are any other questions you’re unsure of, feel free to pinpoint them and I’ll try my best to help! :blush:

Here is a rather interesting video, where a McDonald’s burger still remains fresh after 24 years :laughing: you’ll never know what kind of preservatives they put in there to make them last so long :joy:
